How and when to upgrade to Windows 11 Please read its important!

It might be months before you can install the OS through Windows Update, though.

Windows 11 is here and Microsoft has detailed how the phased rollout will work. The first systems to get the operating system are new devices on which it’s pre-loaded. Starting on October 5th, Microsoft will initially offer the free upgrade to new PCs, laptops and tablets that ship with Windows 10.

Next, Microsoft says it will look at hardware eligibility, reliability metrics and other factors on existing Windows 10 devices to determine when to offer the latest OS through Windows Update. It’s a similar approach to how the company has handled Windows 10 feature updates over the years. You can find out whether your device is compatible using the PC Health Check app.

Microsoft will let you know when Windows 11 is ready for your system via the Windows Update Settings page or when you check for updates. You might be in for a wait, though. The company expects to offer the upgrade to all eligible Windows 10 devices by mid-2022.

Windows 11


Windows Update is Microsoft’s suggested Windows 11 upgrade method, and likely the easiest one for most people. However, you can install the OS manually if you prefer. You can download the Installation Assistant or use an ISO install.

Microsoft doesn’t recommend installing Windows 11 on devices that don’t meet the system requirements, but you’ll still be able to do so. It’s worth noting that you might not get Windows 11 updates on PCs with unsupported processors.

However you decide to make the switch to Windows 11, it’s probably best to back up all of your files first. The OS is likely stable at this point, but it’s not worth taking the risk that something will go awry and cause you to lose important data.

Meanwhile, Microsoft says today marks the start of the 24-month lifecycle for Windows 11 Home and Pro editions, as well as the beginning of 36 months of servicing support for the Enterprise and Education versions.

I will wait for people that review OS’s and see if it stands up to the mark. The main point of Windows11 is that it’s a “Windows for Games and Gamers”, so let’s see how it performs. I don’t want to break my precious comp with this “upgrade”. I’ll wait till December, to make sure patches are ready before I install that Feature update. All right, that’s it from me.

Thank you @Aarav12949 for this news share.

Totally agree with you. I will wait for everyone to try first then will move to this new OS only if the time is ripe.

Hi everyone I have just updated my laptop to windows 11 provided by Microsoft in the update column of setting(As my laptop is compatible and IMP: I AM NOT AN INSIDER ). I feel it’s much nicer than win 10. And if we update to the cumulative update (Optional)for windows 11. It runs smoothly after it. I think now people can update their laptops to win 11. which is working quite smoothly now.
